twitter accounts @robmarcianocnn. he's awesome. governor christie says no washing cars, no watering lawns. in hoboken, right across the river from new york city, the lower part of the city, workers have managed to drain those filthy floodwaters. they thought maybe they were filled with sewage and bacteria and gasoline. this had been keeping almost half of the city's residents trapped inside their homes. let's get right to bob van dillen. the national guard is there, right, bob? they're helping with rescues and helping with supplies too. >> reporter: indeed, soledad. good morning to you. a different story flrthis morni from yesterday. the national guard is still here, but yesterday morning, everybody were in their trucks. the trucks are still here, but they're not idling and i haven't seen a single national guard troop and all the roads dry. the evacuations, they have essentially ceased. that's the good news. but the bad news is the power is still out and people obviously are getting a little bit cold. temperatures right now down into the 40s. yesterday morning, this was also a staging are
of their constituents. governor chris christie seemed to suggest he wasn't taking the election into consideration. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. the president was great last night. he said he would get it done. at 2:00 a.m. i got a call from fema to answer a couple of final questions and he signed the declaration this morning. i have to give the president great credit, he's been on the phone with me three times in the last 24 hours and anything that i've asked for he's gotten to me. i thank the president publicly for that. he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. >> new york city mayor michael bloomberg last night canceled tomorrow's new york city marathon after the critics said the resources were needed elsewhere, after i tweeted about it. i can't help but think that pushed him over the edg
even had republicans, including the prominent republican chris christie, praising him for his efforts, so all around praise for the president. in reacting to this, he's able to look the part, and people seemed to react to what he was doing. >> well, let's talk about that reaction because we just learned that even mayor bloomberg has somewhat endorsed president obama, and as you just mentioned, i mean we've seen sort of a bromance, right, between governor krit tee who has been such a supporter of romney and now barack obama. i mean he has been ee fusive in his praise of the president. what is your sense as to what effect that may have on this election? >> mitt romney has been trying for the longest time to be a bipartisan, even post-partisan leader, and mitt romney is now seeing barack obama play that role in real life. chris christie to go out of his way in praising president obama and then mayor bloomberg's endorsement. mayor bloomberg epitomizes the idea of someone beyond party labels. so for him to come off the sidelines now and cite president obama on his position on climate chang
job. i think chris christie was trying to do his job. i also think that chris christie understands that he faces re-election in a pretty democratic state, and obama understands that he faces re-election next week. those are political realities. they're politicians, and they don't deny that. but they were doing their jobs, and i think christie's role here, as i'm sure you know as a former governor, it was a big deal for christie to come out and do what he did. that also really hurt romney. >> eliot: yes, that was the political maneuver of the week. he played it perfectly. switch gears for a moment. i don't want to say that anything is over and done, but the president is comfortable. the united states senate, a pivot or blocking position for the past couple of years. any particular race there that you think is interesting that has evolved that is demonstrative with what in our politics over the last couple of months? >> i think there are several. the north dakota race there is a good chance. i think missouri, claire mccaskill has a good chance to hold her seat. the most important rac
. dr. chris christie described what happened as unthinkable. >> the devastation that i've seen so far is the worst by faf. the storm made landfall here. >> reporter: had hit just south of atlantic city. dozen himself to be rescued from shelters of last resort where the power failed. in northern new jersey, more search and rescue. after a tidal surge pushed a river over its banks. residents said the water rose five feet in a matter of minutes. >> it was like a lake in our basement and it filled all the way up to our stairs. >> there was no phone lines, electricity was out and all our phones was dead. we couldn't call absolutely nobody. >> reporter: across the straight, 2.4 million customers, 60% of the population, have no power and the worst was probably along the coast in towns like point pleasant beach where some who chose to ride out the storm told of an unbelievable experience. >> it was very surreal last night with just the power and the awe of everything going on. it's only once in a life time you see something like this. >> reporter: the town sits behind a huge line of sand dune

and mitt romney supporter chris christie setting politics aside because of sandy. how will the superstorm impact the presidential election just one week away? i'll speak with pennsylvania governor ed remember dell on the back half of this show. don't miss it. ♪ [ male announcer ] the way it moves. the way it cleans. everything about the oral-b power brush is simply revolutionary. oral-b power brushes oscillate, rotate and even pulsate to gently loosen and break up that sticky plaque with more brush movements than manual brushes and even up to 50% more than leading sonic technology brushes for a superior clean. oral-b power brushes. go to oralb.com for the latest offers. oral-b power brushes. if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> welcome back to our special coverage. the nor
the election. and this from carl. chris christie is able to put aside political differences in a time of disaster. quite different from now democrats treated president bush after katrina. this from james. fitting it tacks an act of god to finally spotlight romney's weaknesses. thank you for your responses and joining me today. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with ashleigh banfield. >> thank you so much. it's 11:00 on the east coast. 8:00 a.m. on the west coast. recovery is a word you are going to be hearing a lot of in the next few days. the word normalcy, not so much. in the wake of superstorm sandy, normal life is a far off dream for so many millions in the northeast corridor and points west. worst of all, a still growing toll of lives lost. at least 40 in the u.s. one so far in canada. more than 6 million homes and businesses still don't have electricity but that is a big improvement from yesterday. and while floods and surges with some exceptions have gone down, that just makes the devastation all the more apparent. you are looking at point pleasant beach halfway betw
colleague, actually, governor christie said today, not much loss of life. this is all about stuff that can be replaced. >> and he's right. it can be replaced if we understand that government has a role in our lives. government has to be the key factor in helping that effort, that recovery effort. >> let's talk about that effort. let me go to david connorn. it seems to me that fema, there was a judgment made way back when in the '70s that government needs to be united. one focus by one man or woman, this guy, fugate's got to be good. you need like a baseball team, you need a manager, somebody to call the shots. >> and we see with more extreme weather happening in the last few years, it's more necessary to have a national, federalized approach, particularly in the planning and in the research, and tracking storms. that can't be done by 50 different states. i thought the president today was very smart when he spoke up in new jersey with governor christie. he thanked the congressional delegate for voting for fema funds. something that, of course, mitt romney -- >> well, anybody -- here's where
with president obama and new jersey governor chris christie. with the election near, but the disaster now, two political rivals joined hands and got to work. they saw a shoreline battered beyond recognition, almost beyond belief. mile after mile of destruction, home after home, life after life. on the ground, at a local shelter, no political complications, just simple need, and promises from each man to needed. >> governor christie, throughout the this process has been responsive, he has been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm, and i think the people of new jersey recognized that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. i want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership. >> i can't thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> i ask you back up, please. >> reporter: in hoboken, that meant the national guard. nowhere to be seen late last night, was out in force today. rescuing people stranded and hungry. >
jersey, governor chris christie promised help. >> we are working with fema and we have lots of the oil companies... gulf oil and hess have both said that they will deliver gasoline with the national guard and fema to any gas station that is not giving out gas because they are out of gas. we are on top of the gas situation. >> suarez: frustration was also at a boil on new york city's staten island, where local officials complained they've been largely ignored since monday's storm. >> this is america, not a third world nation. we need food, we need clothing. >> suarez: another fight was brewing over running the new york city marathon sunday morning beginning on staten island. new york city mayor michael bloomberg defended the decision. >> it doesn't use resources that can really make a difference in recovery and that sort of thing. it's a different group of people. we have to work around the clock for people to get through this thing, and i assure you we're doing that. if i thought it took any resources away from that we would, we would not do this. >> bloomberg reversed course and annou
, and it's still going on. having chris christie as a de facto unintentional surrogate doesn't seem to hurt obama one bit. it probably seems to help him. >> what is so interesting, you said chris christie, de facto endorser of obama. you've got this new article exclusive from politico saying there were people on governor romney's team who believed that chris kri city was the vp choice almost until the very ending, and surprise it's ryan. isn't the timing interesting? >> it's a little too interesting. look, there are two ways to react. governor christie says i'm doing my job. the president is doing his job. we're working together and i'm being honest. you have to respect that. look at two different examples. haley barbour who went through katrina in mississippi says that's absolutely what governor christy ought to say, he is doing what he has to do and get off his back. and you have the underground voices of the romney campaign who were taking a different tack and kind of sniping at christie at different angles, in a fit of pique basically. >> you can't really blame them. this is game theory
significant damages. martha: we heard from governor christie, he is very concerned about the whole state. i know he is trying to get up into a helicopter to look at some of the damage. the wind are still too strong out there for that. rick what can you tell us about that whole area? martha: that was live shot from seaside heights, new jersey. go ahead, rick. >> the damages are widespread. mike come around this way. just to give people an idea how deep this stand is on this particular road. this along, like, you know, getting front-end loader in here to scoop the sand off the streets. this is just one block of one community. there are communities up and down the new jersey coastline just like this. they saw several feet of water. all the dunes were breeched. they have been washed away. that sand is up and down the streets here. look how bad this oceanfront hotel was torn up. the fencing is knocked down. we saw pieces of houses float by us last night. you see where some of the debris is coming from. there are fences gone. there are pools carried away and businesses are just really, really hit
limbaugh says chris christie is fat. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: okay. here is jacki schechner with the news. >> as we're going to wait for official reaction we get a statement from the white house and then we'll hear the president speak. both mitt romney and obama, he is going to start in ohio today, and spending the day in ohio. romney will go to wisconsin first and then head to ohio. he'll be getting a lot of love over the weekend. what is interesting is both candidates have op-eds appearing on cnn.com today. mitt romney's a very routine, it seems to reiterate all of the same stuff. that he will create 12 million new jobs -- 12 million jobs will be created anyway. more of the same. and he has now taken on the idea that he is going to create real change. i can't believe it's not change. he has got real change compared to the president's change. >> stephanie: i thought he was going to call it of course i never said detroit should go bankrupt. >> sure. the president starts out by talking about how we have come together as a nation (vo) brought to you by metlife
to make landfall in one hour right near us. let me show you a picture. this is chris christie who is affected by this situation. he's speaking very positively of a democratic president. >> i thank the president for his telephone call inquiring about how things were going here and assured him that things were going well. so far he invited me to call him at any time if things are not going well. and so we'll make sure that we do that and appreciate the president's outreach today in making sure that we know that he's watching this and is concerned about the health and welfare and safety of the people of the state of new jersey. >> and, chuck, here's the president himself speaking on this topic of the weather today. here he is, president obama. >> this is going to be a big storm, a difficult storm, and the great thing about america is that when we go through tough times like this, we all pull together. we look out for our friends, our neighbors, and we set aside whatever issues we may have otherwise to make sure that we respond appropriately and with swiftness and that's exactly what
questions. thank you, pete. good to talk to you. >>> "national journal's" governor chris christie publicly admonished the mayor of new york city where sandy made landfill and said that the mayor had ignored his warnings to evacuate residents. >> we're at the moment now evacuations are no longer possible and no longer able to cover the rescue people and that's become problematic in atlantic city where for whatever reason mayor langford urged them to stay in shelters in the city. despite my admonition to evacuate. >> well, a little earlier tonight msnbc's lawrence o'donnell spoke with wcau sidney long at one of the shelters in atlantic city where the residents are staying tonight. >> the weather is really turned wicked on the back end of sandy, especially in the last hour or so. we're here at atlantic city high school which is one of four locations set up at this shelter by the mayor of atlantic city and other emergency personnel despi despite governor's christie's orders for a mandatory evacuation that was supposed to happen sunday afternoon. in and around atlantic city early evening tonigh
for a sixth term. he is challenged by christie vilsack. their debate is on iowa public television. steve king -- and this special edition of iowa press, from carroll. steve king has been winning reelection by comfortable margins, getting a fifth term with 2/3 of the votes cast two years ago. redistricting may be diluting that republican dominance. that is what democrats kristi ville sec may have been hoping when she moved halfway across the state, declaring candidacy for the congressional seat. she has been traveling the state as i will's the first lady during husband tom vilsack's tenure. both of you are familiar with the format. we are in a different setting. we have an audience and television viewers. they promise to not sure at all. -- not sure at all. the questions will be coming from brett awyworth and kay henderson. >> you said being a woman was not a barrier to run for public office. do you want voters to vote for you because you are a woman? >> not at all. i think the delegation would be stronger for having a woman. the state has never elected a woman to be higher office and i would
for tuning in. tonight's lead, it looks like obama/christie 2012. president obama in new jersey, governor chris christie today toured hard hit areas of hurricane sandy. their survey of the devastation reminded americans of how many people are suffering from the storm and how essential it is for government to help them. and then governor christie, the man mitt romney handpicked to give the keynote address at his convention began to praise president obama. >> obviously i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together and we saw an opportunity to discuss it at length. and then going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks, seeing the president and his concern. he has sprung into action immediately while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. this is our sixth conversation since the weekend and it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the j
chris christie. >>> coming up, how hurricane sandy has exposed one of mitt romney's biggest lies about president obama. that's in the rewrite. new prilosec otc wildberry is the same frequent heartburn treatment as prilosec otc. now with a fancy coating that gives you a burst of wildberry flavor. now why make a flavored heartburn pill? because this is america. and we don't just make things you want, we make things you didn't even know you wanted. like a spoon fork. spray cheese. and jeans made out of sweatpants. so grab yourself some new prilosec otc wildberry. [ male announcer ] one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. that's the sound of car insurance companies these days. here a cheap, there a cheap, everywhere a cheap... you get it. so, what if instead of just a cheap choice, you could make a smart choice? like, esurance for example. they were born online and built to save people money from the beginning. it's what they've always done. not just something they cheap about. that's insurance for the modern world. esurance. now backed
christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> when she was declared the victor, it was over. >> florida may be too far a bridge for barack obama, but by putting bill clinton and all the things you mentioned, it means the romney campaign has to pay attention to it. >> let's talk about "the washington post" editorial today because it gets to the question of fouling. of break
is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united states actually has a program for military and overseas voters to basically do very similar things. so chris christie is taking a page from that pramt aogram and trying to find out how new jersey voters are not disenfranchised. >> joe, i understand it's not just for the people who have been affected by the super stor
and was greeted by chris christie and they flew over portions in a helicopter of atlantic and cape may county. they saw boardwalks and streets covered and flooded with water and sand. the focus right now is to help those who are victims and others who have been displaced by the lost power from the storm. >> our hearts go out to the families who lost loved ones. it's true because of good preparation, the loss of life was kept lower than it might have been. for the individual families, obviously, their world has been torn a part. >> obviously, i want to thank the president we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage. we were in marine one together to show the president that personally. >> reporter: in light of the devastation, the president suspended his presidential campaign activities and the president will resume campaigning tomorrow, which stops in wisconsin, nevada, and colorado. mitt romney campaigned in tampa, florida, with senator marco rubio and jeb bush but mitt romney didn't mention president obama by name, shawn. >> what do you think this is going to do? what sort
donnell in virginia. chris christie in new jersey. even bobby jindal in louisiana. have praised the fact right now there is a close partnership between the white house and the governor's republican and democratic governors. but listen talk about fema. paul ryan, his budget cut -- "new york times" reports this morning. congressional republicans cut 43% out of the primary fema grants that pay for disaster preparedness. remember eric cantor. remember peter, eric cantor, the hurricane struck his district fema wanted to go in there. they wanted more money because of some of the disasters. they asked for more money to deal with the earthquake. even in cantor's district. he said no. we're not going to give fema anymore money unless you cut money from healthcare, you know. so they've been -- anti-disaster relief and again, mitt romney who wants to give it to the states, get rid of fema, put it in the hands of the state or maybe the private sector. can you imagine, can you imagine with this hurricane hitting the coast like new jersey or
